How do essay writing services work?Although every essay writing service provider has a unique way of doing things, I can summarize their operations in four simple steps.You register with the company by filling a form that needs your personal information.Place your order detailing all the requirements of the signNow.Sit back and let the writers do the work.Receive the signNow and review it, then pay.However, most will let you request a revision if you are not satisfied even though some will charge you.Though that sounds quite easy, I would also suggest working with a writer or consultant directly to help you interact one on one.The advantage of working with clients directly is that;You can follow the progress by interacting with the writer at intervals.You can bargain the cost of the work unlike with companies where the prices are fixed.Also, you get instant feedback and clarifications whenever there are issues.You build trust with a single writer, which creates consistent quality and writing style.Although you may recommend the same writer with the writing companies, you might not get them every time you need their service.Having been in this industry for the last five years, I understand the nitty gritty of the essay writing services. If you need high quality, unique, and timely essays, get to me through the following email@example.comThank you
How do you study for company secretary executive exam within three months?Well, I can relate to this question because I had 3.5 months to prepare for my Executive level too, along with my b.com exams. And with my sincere dedication to time table I cleared it all in first attempt.So I would like to share my experience with you, hope it helps.It was end of August and I did not touch my executive study modules. August 25- Result day! Most of my seniors results were decalred and many did not clear. And I saw a rush of students in library with huge reference books dedicatedly studying. And here I was with an attitude, dekh lenge yaar abhi toh exam December mein hai. (Translation: we'll see , exams are only by end of December)But the fear of failure hit me when I saw my seniors who did not clear and a rush inside me said, I can't handle this and I have to clear it in first go. August 25- I sat and made time table adjusting my CS course and b.com too! Here are few tips:First:Make two types of time table: 1. First rough draft for next 3months 2. Concrete time-table for every week or twoSo first make a rough draft of 3 month, for example September for 2 subjects or 3 subjects. Then Oct first 15 days for revision and then next 3 subjects in remaining 15days. For concerte time table:Initially set goal for a week and no matter what, follow it. Trick here lies is that if you set a concert time table for 3months you might miss out a day sometimes due to some uncertainty, disturbing your whole time table. You can't eat all the breads on the plate in one go. You need to complete one bread to eat another and decide can you consume 3rd bread now or little later. So finish your first goal and decide whether you need a revision or you can go for another chapter or subject.For concerts time table if you decide to complete a chapter in 3days keep 1days extra. Extra day is if you could not complete it in 3days you have a day in extra to cover it up without disturbing your timetable for next days. (But don't take that extra day as an excuse to watch movie or for time pass.) And in case if you complete your chapter in allotted three day, bingo! you can continue with another chapter and you have extra days where you can revise the chapters.Second:Cut down on all the distractions for 3months: Facebook, whatsapp,get together,parties,family occasions etc. Sleeping , listening to songs, playing with my pet for10-15 mins, breakfast lunch dinner all this activites was taking a break from studies for me.A movie wont harm but it will take away 2-3hrs. Which you can't afford. So think about it. Third:Make sure you get a sleep for minimum 8hrs. Yes only when you are fresh you can completely concentrate, grasp things well and stay active. I use to sleep for 6 hrs in night (10pm to 4am) and 2hrs in afternoon(3pm to 5pm) Fourth:Make a habit of making notes about whatever you study. If you have a habbit of writing and studing . I don't have this habbit. And I am very lazzy to do this as I found it very time consuming. So what I did was sticking sticker notes in my book itself. Making short bullet point and sticking it near the topic helps you when you revise. Examples given in lectures can be noted this way which can help you recollect the other explaination given in class room easily.Fifth:Keep 2nd weekend and 4th weekend of the month, or any day of a month for revision of whatever you have studied so far. Trust me revision is important as what you have studied in september ,if you don't revise it in October then in by end of November when you open it you can be in trouble. Sixth:Last but not least cheating on your time table is allowed but keep in mind its consequences.I am just sharing my experience. You can alter this as per your requirement. This was my time-table:4am-6am: study for CS6am-7am: break7am-10am : b.com classes10am-11am: break11am-230pm: study for CS & bcom when necessary2:30pm-5pm: break5pm-730pm: classes for CS or library730pm-830pm: break830pm-10pm: study for CS(Break time was for breakfast,dinner,lunch,sleeping, playing with my pet,talking to mom-dad or friends family. But my eyes were always on clock that no time is wasted)PS : everything was not done on exact time as I am not a robot. 5-10mins deviation from time was normal. Initial days will be tough but follow it dedicatedly it will become your routine and then habbit. PPS: I followed it strictly might have cheated once or twice. But made sure the time was covered by shortening my break.And trust me after all this hard work on 25th february when I saw my results as "pass" in both the modules and b.com results as passed- that's a joy which I can't explain in words.All the best for future.I
Why do many people in the US have so much resentment about the meager governmental benefits that the poor receive?I am one of the “poor”.I wasn’t for most of my life - I worked as a mechanical engineer and, according to the IRS, had paid taxes since I was 15 and a half and a lifetime’s earnings that stretched into millions of dollars of income (again… that’s income over my working life combined)… then I get hit by a truck and can no longer work. Yes, I have money in savings, but my monthly disability check is less than what I earned in three days of my work.During the beginning of me being on disability, I tried to give back to the community in any way I could - to make myself feel that I was not totally worthless.I volunteered at a local church food bank (two hours per month). The policy was one bag of food per month per person in the household. This food was bought by monies raised by donations to the church and donations from local grocery stores (day-old bread and canned food with a little ding or dent, etc). It was all good food, not C-rations from Vietnam.On one day (it happened all the time, just not at this level), a woman comes in with the proper proof of family size… eleven children and her parents… so fourteen bags of food… she came late on the last day of the month (we had four hours twice a month). We had run low on many items we included in the bags of food.The way this operation worked was: people line up and we open at noon. As people stand in line, volunteers hand out “menu” slips to make sure people did not get food they were allergic to or could not eat (for Kosher/Halal reasons or even no hard food for people with no teeth). It was well-planned… but if we were out of items, we were out. It wasn’t like we could call the grocery store and demand them to make an express delivery or anything…Back to this woman… she had her hair with a very nice weave. Long fingernails that had been expertly manicured and was definitely NOT wearing rags… as she received her bags of food (volunteers helped carry them to her fairly new Mercedes SUV), she complained that her kids do not eat green beans! Why green beans? Last month she got green peas that her kids like, but they won’t eat green beans! She demanded we go out to the store and BUY peas right now.BTW, before we could even offer to take the bags to her vehicle (it was our policy to do it anyway), she blurts out that she is disabled and in now way can carry even ONE bag by herself… I had also overheard her boasting to another person in line about how she gets welfare for each of her dependents (11 kids and her two parents)… for those outside the US, that’s about $10,000 per month in “meager government assistance”.… and she wants the FREE food to be swapped out for something else?Another incident happened at the “Social Services” office.I was there to get a form to fill out regarding my disability… a woman behind the counter had brought in THREE trays of cookies for the people in line.This woman was in front of me. She sees the cookies and asks the woman behind the counter if they are free. The woman says “Yes” and then they go about filling out the forms she was there for… as she leaves, she again asks, “These are free?” the clerk nods and says “Yep, I bring in cookies every day for the people in line”. Without hesitation, the woman in front of me picks up all three trays and dumps every cookie into her large purse as she says “My kids will LOVE these treats”… and walks away.Why do people have a low opinion of those in the US who receive “meager” benefits? There are people who use the system to get everything they can and abuse the generosity of taxpaying citizens.I have a couple more similar stories, one even worse than the two above combined, but I cannot type anymore.People see these stories of those who game the system for additional benefits, or outright cheat the system… demanding a food bank provide peas and not green beans when it’s free food… and you drive a MERCEDES?Taxpayers pay into the system that provides these “meager” benefits, and when they see how the people receiving those benefits cheat and scam the system ending up making MORE than the people being taxed to pay for their aid, it garners some resentment… “Why should I work my butt off, lose a third of my income to taxes, and these people who benefit from my work (via taxes) live better than I do? Why should I work at all?”“If they can afford bi-weekly hair weaves, top-end manicures and drive luxury cars, why do they need money from those working hard every day?”Not everyone games the system, but many do and get away with it. When caught, it makes news… therefore, the regular working “Joe or Jane” only sees the people getting benefits who are nothing but cheaters… the news does nt report about the normal welfare recipient or disabled person, they only report the schemers… and that is the only thing regular Americans see, so the resentment is justified in a way.If the regular American saw how MOST benefit recipients lived, they would see it in a completely different light.
Are there any airline pilots on Quora, how was the interview and other selection process that led you to the job?Caution: Lengthy answer ahead:I was lucky enough to be selected by Indigo (a major low cost carrier in India) as a junior first officer in August 2017 after clearing about 5 rounds worth of their selection process. Now, the exact and rounds process may vary from airline to airline but the essence is the same throughout the industry. Now remember that the process that I'll describe is for a fresher in the industry, i.e. Non Type Rated CPL holder. If you're an experienced pilot with lots of hours, the process may be different for you. I'll elaborate on indigo's process and provide details about other airlines' process too wherever I can.Round 1 - Technical written examThis is the first round for almost all airlines' selection process in India. There are 120 odd multiple choice questions based on topics like aerodynamics, jet engines, performance, meteorology, air navigation, regulations , etc etc. Though the questions are multiple choice, they're not objective questions. Some of them (numericals) need to be calculated and marked accordingly.Indigo's first round was on pen and signNow with an OMR sheet being provided. It was the same with Vistara, a full service airline in India. Spicejet (another low cost carrier) had this round on computer screens.Round 2 & 3 - CASS and PsychometryCASS, in my opinion, is a test of your presence of mind, multi tasking skills, and stress management. You'll be in a room with 5 computer screens. 3 of them will be in front of you, combined, and 1 each on either side. On the 3 screens in front, you'll be playing (almost) a computer game on which you'll be flying an aircraft with the help of a joystick. No technicalities, it's pretty easy to handle. You'll be following instructions which will be given to you through headsets. At the same time, you'll be solving some problems on the screens to your left and right. Problems based on mental math, memory, logical reasoning etc. You'll also be given a 4 digit pin to remember right at the beginning of the session, and you'll be asked questions about the pin (sum of digits etc) during your session. You'll also have to look out for traffic, follow instructions, and fly the aircraft safely while doing all this. The entire session lasts for about an hour.After the session is over, you'll have a debrief in which you'll be asked to rate your performance, tell them about what went wrong, why it went wrong, and what you could've done to do things better.A few days after CASS (can be done before as well) you'll have to fill out an online psychometric form. 160 odd questions to get to know you better. Then you'll have a Skype interview with a psychologist (I think) from the UK and this will last for about 50–60 minutes where you'll have to open up and be completely honest about the questions they ask you. Some of the questions could be based on the psychometric form you filled out so make sure you fill it yourself and you fill it honestly. There are no right or wrong answers. It's just to know you as a person.Other airlines may conduct a COMPASS test which is also to check your multi tasking skills and stress management abilities.Round 4 & 5 - Group activity and Personal Interview (GA/PI)Congratulations on getting this far. Last few steps now.You could have your GA and PI on the same day or consecutive days. In the group activity, you'll be put in a room with 4 other people and 3–4 moderators who'll be judging you. Now remember, it's a group activity, not a group discussion. So you 5 will be given a scenario on which you all have to work together. Showcase your leadership skills here but do not be overly dominant. Work as a team. Work the problem. If you're not able to, tell the moderators at the end of the activity what didn't work and why it didn't work. The session lasts for about 30 minutes.The personal interview. This is your chance to leave a last impression on the panel. The interview is a mix of technical and HR. On the panel will normally be a couple of senior captains and one person from the HR department. That doesn't mean that the captains can't ask you HR based questions. You require adequate technical knowledge and a good personality with confidence and passion to clear this round. Do not, for one second, think that you can fool the panel in any way. They're probably in this industry since before you were born. They will catch you.Get one more thing straight - knowing the A-Z of Aviation will not get you a job. Even if you know the A-J, but have a willingness to learn, a positive attitude, and you're ready to accept when you're wrong and not argue unnecessarily, you'll make the cut. Smile, be confident, be courteous, and think twice before you speak. You'll not get this opportunity again for a long time.The interview could last anywhere between 10 minutes to an hour. Don't judge the interview based on how long it lasted. My interview lasted for 50 minutes. My friend's lasted for 10. We both cleared.The results are declared within 10 odd days via email.I hope I've been of some help. Feel free to ask me anything else related to the selection process and I'll be happy to help.Good luck and happy landings! :)
What has your experiences with pitbulls (dog) been like?Hard. Worth it, but hard.This was my experience with my pitbull. Our boy was found by a friend on a morning stroll. Tiny and scarily thin, she walked the neighborhood she found him in to try to find an owner—at least a mother dog. No one recognized the flea-infested pup and no one wanted him. She brought him to me. We discussed his fate as we watched him strut around my living room.“That puppy has worms,” I observed. My friend turned to me, incredulous.“How do you know?”“’Cause they’re coming out of his butt,” I replied, indicating.The decision was made that he would stay with me, I’d nurse him back to health and find a more suitable home. After all, I was 19 and living at home—I knew my parents wouldn’t want another pet (1 other dog, 3 cats, and a few small pets as well).I took him to our vet, got him de-wormed/vaccinated and weighed (4.8 lbs.) and found out his age (about 5 weeks).“He should really be with the mother at this age,” the vet informed me. “Not just for nutrition, she needs to teach him how to be a pup.”I looked down at the dirty puppy, bundled in towels, on my lap. He was working on shredding his bedding—he certainly was active.That night I took him outside every hour, on the hour, to relieve himself. After 24 hours, I was finally able to see more waste than worms in his droppings. His little bloated stomach began to slacken, it just made his bony frame more startling.His aggression began with my other dog, a senior lab/beagle mix. It started as play-based aggression and quickly became dominating. This required correction. His energy level was through the roof, and he was growing rapidly. We later found out he is a predominantly pit/Great Dane mix—those long legs!He began displaying dominance-based aggression toward my mother. As she’d try to water her plants, he’d nip at the heel of her pants and try to pull her shirt. “Puppy stuff” some people would say. Maybe, I thought, but he’s getting so big.At about 5 months, he started picking fights with fenced dogs while on walks. I enrolled him in training. He completed every level of training they had to offer. He was great at obedience. Horrible at socialization. At 1, he received major surgery for a knee injury that he sustained during a play session in the back yard. It was a 10-month recovery process. For him, it was painful and probably traumatic. But it guaranteed him a life free of future pain. I just wanted him to be able to run. He needed to run.At 2, fully recovered, I resumed his training. I always had treats in one pocket and his deterrent in the other (emits high-pitched whistle; just jolts him to attention). I exercised him, daily, vigorously. I was consistent with my discipline.By 4 he was secure enough to stop trying to dominate everyone. But walks were still an issue and he was possessive. Feeding time was a matter of dropping the food bowl and running out of the way. I began standing across the aisle from him while he’d eat and methodically desensitized him. One of my favorite things to do now is to lay my hand on his head as he eats, feeling his cranial muscles working as he chews.At 5, we made a breakthrough. He was in peak physical shape and mentally, he was at peace.We named him Stinky; in memory of his humble beginnings we say, but it was just a name that stuck “Stinky Puppy”, he never answered to the more refined names we tried. Raising him was hard work, but dealing with the people we encountered was worse. Whenever I’d express my frustration with his aggression people would nod “…yes…vicious…pitbulls”. I never believed Stinky was aggressive because he’s a pitbull, I’ve met many well-adjust pitties throughout the years. He was a special case and every time he behaved in a way that affirmed certain groups’ stereotypical beliefs about his breed, I’d cringe and vow to work harder. (No one ever said he was aggressive because he’s a Great Dane.)At 5 weeks old, Stinky was emaciated and infested with round and tape worms. The vet informed me that a puppy that young with that bad of an infestation likely contracted the parasites while still in the womb. His mother was either severely neglected, or on the streets. She obviously struggled to care for him, and lost him. I read article after article discouraging people from adopting a puppy so young stating proper socialization needed to be taught by the mother and litter-mates.One time, early on, after a frustrating wrestling match in the back yard with Stinky, my mom came into the house and announced “That’s it, I can’t do this anymore, we have to find him another home.”“No one is going to want him, Mom,” I pleaded “he’s too much to handle and a shelter won’t even give him a chance. He’ll be euthanized.”She reluctantly agreed to give me more time to work with him.He’s an 11-year old senior dog now, who splits his time between helping my dad in the yard (he’s great at chewing sticks) and napping on his Serta doggie bed. I moved out eventually, he stayed with my parents (their request). I knew he was better off in a home with a yard than a small apartment, so I agreed.I visit regularly and make sure to post a pic online for family and friends, he’s so popular. The last few years, I’ve received a lot of compliments on his good behavior, how prompt his responses are and how quickly he learns new things. But I can’t help but smile inwardly every time any one calls him “gentle”, and he is. We’re very proud of his progress, he and I. We just needed a little more time.5 weeks. Playing in the grass on Thanksgiving, a couple days after being found.5 years. Panting, after a romp in the sprinklers. There’s that pittie smile!11 years. Surrounded by the remnants of the tree branch he just shredded. Such a good boy.
Has serving on a jury in the U.S. given you a different view of the law and the judicial system? Has your view become better or worse of the system?I already had a poor opinion of the jury and court system before I was ever summoned. My experience merely confirmed it.Trial by jury is an anachronism, and in an age where jurors have to send to the judge to ask what a Senator is, it is dangerous. It was a necessary remedy 750 years ago, when Henry II sent royal justices from shire to shire to try cases on the Crown’s behalf. Knowing nothing of local circumstances, the justices had a panel of local men swear to the truth of a matter. Of course it was an improvement over trial by ordeal or combat.Many matters today are simply too complex for reasonable decisions to be rendered by anyone except experts. To think that I might find myself at risk of being deprived of life, liberty, or property by the sort of person who voted for our current President is intolerable.Around 1976, I read Louis Nizer’s My Life in Court. Nizer argued for the plaintiff in a civil case in which a professional had been egregiously negligent. Any reasonable verdict ought to have included enormous damages. In his summation, Nizer said the defendant’s indifference to his professional duty had been little short of criminal.When the verdict was read, the jury found for the plaintiff but, to Nizer’s astonishment, awarded an insultingly trivial sum. When Nizer asked why, it turned out that the whole time, the jury had never understood the difference between a civil and criminal trial. They could not evade the defendant’s obvious guilt, but when Nizer used the word “criminal” in his summation, they feared that if they awarded large damages, this would somehow result in a prison sentence for the defendant.I was summoned for jury duty in 1997 and spent 2 or 3 days reading in the jury room. Finally, I was called.The judge, who had the reputation of being a judicial lightweight whose wealthy family had purchased her judgeship, gave a languid description to the jury, in a barely audible voice, of the difference between a criminal standard of proof (“beyond a reasonable doubt”) and a civil standard (“preponderance of the evidence”). I would be amazed if one in 10 understood what she meant. I was tempted to just speak up and ask them, but of course, I would have been immediately held in contempt.The case was about a traffic accident. The judge allowed one of the attorneys to make a statement before the jurors that, as far as I could tell, immediately prejudiced the case and made a fair trial impossible before it began.Years later, that judge was forced into retirement when it was found that she was conducting her own investigation into a case before her court and actually visiting the home of one of the parties to demand information.The sheriff’s deputy who escorted us to that courtroom was found as a customer in a crack house a few weeks later, in uniform, with his service revolver by his side.This happened in a city of over half a million people.I was called again in 2012. This time, I served for half a day on a grand jury. That, too, was an eye-opener.We were warned that we were not there to try the case, but only to decide, upon presentation of basic facts, if a “true bill” existed (that is, if it seemed there was probable cause to return an indictment and hold a trial). I did not find most of the presentations convincing.For instance, a robbery had occurred at a Walmart. A black man had been apprehended nearby, running. Now he may have been the robber, or perhaps he was someone else altogether. I asked on what basis this black man had been detained. The very polite detective presenting the case said he was sorry, but he had not been involved and was only presenting these facts on someone else’s behalf. I voted “no true bill.” In this, as in the other cases we heard, almost all the jury seemed to simply rubber-stamp whatever the police said.The next witness, a female officer, was not so polite; she seemed to regard any questions as an impertinence. A gun had been found under the hood of a man’s car; it had been assumed it must be his, and his denial of ownership was ignored. I pointed out to the officer that I did not own a gun and asked what was to prevent some gun owner who had committed a crime from placing it under the hood of my car, only to be discovered by a surprised mechanic when I took my car to the dealer for servicing. I don’t recall her answer, only her smart, sarcastic attitude. My overall impression of the process was that the grand jury was expected to uncritically vote a true bill for insubstantial and poorly prepared cases.My third experience was for Federal jury duty. This judge seemed intent on badgering everyone, of any background or persuasion, to acknowledging that they could be objective in judging any case. He made a show of asking for people’s opinions but then simply ignored them. For instance, the case to be cried was a gun crime (but not a violent one), and I told him that my cousin’s two children had been shot to death by their stepfather just a few years before, and the judge still said “But you can be objective in this matter, yes?” I suspect many people answered “Yes” for fear that if they answered otherwise, they would be held in contempt, perhaps even jailed.One poor woman even spoke up and said she had Crohn’s disease, which would make her bathroom needs urgent and immediate, and the judge still said he thought it best if she would serve. I found his forcing her to admit such a thing publicly, disgusting.Despite the judge, the attorneys found ample reason to challenge me, and I was dismissed.I believe cases should be tried before mature, well-informed people of sound judgement and sufficient knowledge to evaluate the evidence. To think that such a group is likely to be discovered in today’s United States by the present jury selection system is simply laughable.
What is it like to complete your final PhD defense? What happened and how did it feel?I sat on the couch, clutching my iPhone tightly. I had just completed my oral defense and my heart was still racing a thousand beats per minute. My palms were sweaty, I mused, in an effort to pass the time. At the completion of my presentation and Q&A round, I was asked by my mentor to step off the call. I knew they were discussing my research, my findings, my responses to their questions, my presentation, and were working together to make an informed mutual decision. It would only take objections from one committee member to halt my progress and end my journey towards my end state goal. I didn't realize that the clock on our family room wall ticked so loudly until I sat there on the couch in excruciating silence, waiting for the inevitable call. Each tick was a reminder that time was not standing still, though it felt like an eternal wait. A thousand questions raced through my mind. Did they like my presentation? Was my research good enough? Did my last "So What?" slide hammer home the final message that my findings were valid and reliable? Did I answer their questions to their satisfaction? Did I leave anything important out? Did my mentor remember my phone number? Should I call him back? Could I live up to the title of "Doctor" that I had fought to earn? What would my family say if I failed? The ring on my phone was startling. It brought me back from the depths of my darkest fears, thoughts, and concerns. I pressed the answer button and raised the device to my ear. It felt weighted down by the intensity of my emotions, if that were even possible. "Hello, this is Aaron." I slowly stated. After what seemed like several minutes, though was probably only a split second instance, I heard the most wonderful six words stated back to me by my mentor, "Congratulations Dr. Wester, you earned it."At that moment, I was overwhelmed, happy, elated, excited, shaking, and terribly tense. I had survived one of the most difficult experiences of my 38 years of existence on this earth, 3rd only to asking my wife to marry me, and being told by hospital staff that we could take our newborn first child home without being provided any additional guidance, instructions, or "Parenting Guide for Dummies" book. I had survived almost 5 years of dedicated doctoral level research and statistics, quality reviews, respondent surveying, and more writing than I had ever done previous on a dissertation that spanned over 600 pages of meticulous study, analysis, and intricate synthesis. Such a flood of emotion that no dam could suppress. An intensity of feelings that suddenly caught me off guard. Suddenly, I found myself in tears. Not of pain, but of joy, gladness, and relief. I couldn't help but think, 'what a wonderful way to complete this journey after years of intensive study and diligent effort, and a day before my 39th birthday no less'. So regardless of where you are in your educational journey, consider this to be proof that a doctoral degree is within your grasp if you but signNow with all your effort and your best foot forward. People would tell me there's light at the end of tunnel when things looked darkest, but I didn't believe them - I could have sworn they had to be referring to an oncoming train. Not so, I discovered. Instead, I found that the light at the end is an incredibly brilliant and long lasting rainbow of accomplishment beyond description - so work hard, because it's worth the view. ;-)After receiving the news, I immediately called my wife who relayed to our youngest 6 year old son. He asked "Does that mean that Daddy gets to go to the Doctor building and help people?", to which she replied "No honey, he's the other kind of doctor, the kind that doesn't help people". We laughed as we were caught in the moment. She had been through the trials and tears, the pain, and the hardships over the last several years that when combined, were the essential core ingredients of my educational journey. She understood, and she shared in the moment with love and respect. I hadn't made it, instead we had made it together as a family. I immediately posted on Facebook, Google Plus, and Twitter after hanging up with her. I Instant Messaged my friends, and called my parents. It was a good day, and a signNow accomplishment in my life. Of all my Facebook posts, it received the most number of "likes" I've seen yet. This reminded me that I was loved and supported by amazing individuals all over the world. I'm now greatly looking forward to publishing my completed and publication ready dissertation entitled "Readers' Trust, Socio-Demographics, and Acuity Influences in Citizen Journalism Credibility for Disrupted Online NewssignNows"More importantly, I'm looking forward to tomorrow. I have fond memories of yesterday, and today is the best day so far, but I'm positive that tomorrow will be even better. :-)Dr. Aaron M. Wester, PhD
What are telltale signs that you're working at a "sinking ship" company?Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina Principle states, "Happy families are all alike, but every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." He saw that unhappy families were each doomed by unique problems of their own making, while happy families were those who steered clear of such problems.The corporate world suffers from the reverse of the Anna Karenina Principle. Successful companies each seem to invent their own unique paths to success. But failing companies follow predictable death spirals that have been followed by many other companies preceding them.Often these "sinking ship" companies can seem to be doing just fine, especially to employees who don't have the experience to recognize the obvious signs. This is handy guide of what to look out for.If you work at a big company, look for:New opportunities are evaluated and shot down based on their impact to the old legacy businesses. (See The Innovator's Dilemma).Managers are paid for making quarterly and annual targets, so they avoid investments that pay off in the future since they detract from their bonus numbers. As the business declines, they simply negotiate lower bonus targets each year.You benchmark your performance against your direct, legacy competitors instead of the new disruptive entrants in your market. You think you are doing well vs. your competitors without being aware that you are competing in the equivalents of the Seniors Tour.Mediocre employees are not fired since their managers know they can't recruit better ones anyway.When asked "why do you like working here?" your employees talk about the dental plan.Your managers roll their eyes when you point out that how new technologies like Apple Watches, Twitter, and Amazon Web Services will impact your business. They call them "toys" and say, "our customers will never trust their businesses to those!"Your co-workers use Blackberries from 2009. They say, "I already know how to use it, and I don't need that distracting new stuff."You spend the first week of the quarter talking about long-term strategic planning. You then forget about it and spend the next twelve weeks scrambling to make the quarter.Instead of firing bad leaders, you create cross-functional committees to solve the problems those bad leaders created. When those problems persist, you disband the committees and bring in consultants to solve the problems the bad leaders (then the committees) created.All conversations about new grown end with reluctant middle management saying, "only if you give me more budget!" The budget never comes, and you all go back to what you were doing.You integrate acquired companies so quickly that you destroy their businesses and their best people leave.Or, instead of integrating the acquired companies, you keep them as independent business units and get no synergies. You integrate them in a hurry a year later during a cost-cutting exercise. The best people leave.Your CFO spends 5% of her time talking about innovation and revenue growth and 95% talking about cutting costs. She says, "that's my role here."The HR department thinks their job is administration, compliance, and keeping employees from suing, not ensuring the company wins in the market by having the best team.To pay $9.99 for an Evernote subscription, you need to wait a year for the "Information Technology Steering Committee" to approve Evernote as a vendor.You have a Chief Strategy Officer. People say, "I don't know what he does all day." He disappears and is not replaced.You don't target the best companies and try to hire their best people. Instead, you put three-page job descriptions on your website and wait for candidates to find them, fill out a form, and apply.People argue over offices. They all use the same excuse: "I'm on the phone a lot."You launch "innovation projects." When it looks like you'll miss earnings by a penny a share a few quarters later, those projects are cut. After those risky but innovative projects are cancelled, the people working on them are laid off, getting richly punished for their risk taking. No one ever signs up for an "innovation project" again."Succession planning" has become a euphemism for, "when the boss quits, just promote someone on her team so we don't need to pay for a search."You have five CEOs in five years. The board then announces the company is getting broken up and sold. They act like that was the plan all along, then lay off you and half of your co-workers.You ask your laid-off co-workers why they joined the company in the first place. Their answer: "job security."If you work at a startup:You never hear how much cash you have in the bank or hear what was discussed in the board meeting. When you ask questions, your executives say, "I need you to stay focused on your work."When you get your stock option offer, no one will tell you how many shares are outstanding or that the last round of funding came with a 5x liquidation preference.People never talk, coordinate, or even leave their desk because they "hate meeetings." (They actually hate each other).You "rehearse" for board meetings and spend a week on board meeting slideshows that are prettier than your customer slides.You have more MBAs on the team than engineers. They all do "business development" since sales is beneath them.You have a Chief Strategy Officer. No one knows what he does. He disappears one day and is not replaced.Your CTO just came out of a PhD program and wants to "commercialize his research."You have a raucous launch party that is attended by no customers, only your friends.When the product doesn't sell, you complain about how the customers "just don't get it" and aren't "visionary."You've fired three VPs of Sales because each one told you, "the customers don't want the product."Your CEO has a "great" customer meeting that he says is sure to lead to a closed deal before the quarter ends this Friday. All he needs to do is meet with procurement, negotiate price, win the deal, agrees on terms, write up up contracts, negotiate them, sign them, and invoice the customer. The deal closes 175 days later.You add features because board members want them. Your CEO calls himself a "visionary" in his bio.The CEO keeps everything secret because, "that is how Apple does it."The CEO approves all of the design decisions because, "that is how Apple does it."The technical co-founder is a bad manager so agrees to hire a VP of Engineering to replace him. He thinks that VP will report to him since he is the "visionary'".Your site is going to be ad-supported, and you have 1500 users.You get free lunch but have no customers.Your free lunch is taken away.Your boss renegotiates your salary and asks you, "how much do you really need to live on?"He offers you more stock options. He still doesn't tell you how many shares are outstanding.You get laid off and become a creditor to the company because they didn't reimburse your last five expense reports.The liquidation yields five Aeron chairs and a Nespresso machine, and Ashton Kutcher's stock is senior to yours.
